Welcome to the newly added introduction forum. Stop in a tell about yourself and about your bike (s)

Hi All,

I just picked up this beauty earlier today. I wasn't necessarily looking but have been wanting to get back on 2 wheels after a long time away. 7166 original miles and seems to run well. She'll need tires right away (original tires on there). No rear indicators so I'll need to find a pair of those, and also needs rear view mirrors. Looks like the brake handle assembly on the right has been replaced with aftermarket and there isn't a receiver for the mirror. Can someone snap a picture of the assembly showing mirror attachment for me? I'd appreciate it. :) Thanks and HELLO!

Welcome to the forum. Don't have a pic, but the mirror mounts are integral in the (stock) brake master cylinder housing and clutch lever housing. If there are some 10mm threaded holes in both of those, that's where the mirrors mount.

Thanks Flitecontrol, This is what I have (pic) so it's something aftermarket as suspected. I appreciate the input I was having a hard time finding pics online that would enlarge the view well enough. What you had to say about it is the info I was after. I ordered a replacement MC that has the threaded hole. Also, thanks for the 10mm info. I was assuming that but wasn't willing to order mirrors without confirming and my manual hasn't arrived yet. I appreciate the reply. :)

Honda is among the majority of Japanese motorcycle manufacturers that makes both mirrors with a clockwise insertion. Think Suzuki is the only one with left and right side mirrors.

Flitecontrol this is super helpful to me. I automatically thought they'd be right and left. Glad you let me know.

Welcome to the forum. Your question has me curious; how may different members are you trying to have conversations with, or are you referring to something other than what the forum administrators here call a "conversation", a.k.a. a personal message?

Just one member, it was a direct message and conversation with that member regarding one of their posts about parts.

Howdy ya'll! I'm new to motorcycling and I recently got my first motorcycle sorta by accident, it's a '12 Rebel 250. I took the MSF class over the summer to get my license just because I felt like it. Then out of the blue I inherited a nicer used car than my old one and I went to sell my old car on the facebooks and one guy offered to trade his Rebel 250 for my old car and here I am! As of writing this I've ridden a grand total of 15.7 miles and it was merry.

Welcome top the forum and good idea with the MSF course. Follow up by reading David Hough's books, Proficient Motorcycling and More Proficient Motorcycling. Books are a tremendous compilation of riding tips by an expert.

I'm sorry, I posted this as a new discussion instead of the new introductions. Did I mention I am a blond over 50..... following instructions gets complicated for me...... lol

OK... I am new to motorcycles and riding and all things mechanical.... I was a passenger on a motorcycle for the first time in March 2020 and found it to be amazingly fun, then I couldn't find anyone to be a passenger with for the entire summer. So in August I took the class at the local Harley Store, failed the test and retook it 2 weeks later. Passed with flying colors and received my endorsement on my license in Sept 2020. I saw my Rebel, fell in love and took it home with me.

Last Sunday night I was on a group "full moon" ride and dropped my bike. Besides being embarrassed and sad, I am fine and the bike only has some minor scratches except for the clutch lever, which I now have to push out, it does not release by itself when I let go.

One of the guys on the ride said it appeared that there was a "burr" that needed filed down. I couldn't see or feel it so I just bought new levers and am going to replace them this evening. There is a YouTube video on it that makes it look so easy.

Hopefully all will go well because I want to do the Toys for Tots Toy Run in the morning. Wish me well.

Welcome to the forum. Riders that get professional training are less likely to be involved in a crash, so good on you. Suggest you read David Hough's books, Proficient Motorcycling and More proficient Motorcycling, then read them again in six months and annually thereafter. You'll be surprised at how much "new" information you'll discover on subsequent readings.

Howdy - new rider here. Took the MSF course and bought a 2012 Honda Rebel 250 with ~7K miles. Planning on using for surface street riding and commuting to work (about 5 miles each way) but in the meantime, am continuing to work on feeling more comfy with the basic skills we learned in the MSF class. Glad to find this site!
